The experts have weighed in and 2021 will look totally different than 2020. The first major difference is floor plans. In 2020 open floor plans were all the rave because they allowed us to flow seamlessly from one room to the next. The Coronavirus forced families to incorporate work, school, and play all under the same roof making the need for personal space even more crucial. So, what do you do if you can't afford to change your floor plan?
1. Use furniture to divide the room. Here a large china cabinet was used to separate the living room from the kitchen allowing for peaceful virtual meetings without the distraction of clanging pots and pans.
Below are cabinets that would be a perfect way to accomplish this look starting at $375. If you don't see anything you like pictured below The Estate Center has a huge selection to choose from ranging from antiques to modern contemporary.
2. Repurposed Furniture is another design trend that is hot and for reasons that may surprise you. People are realizing that the press board furniture that is sold in most stores doesn't last and so they are opting to repurpose pieces made of solid wood. Here is a television armoire that was repurposed into a desk.
The Estate Center has a huge selection of armoires for you to repurpose starting at $75. You can't beat these prices or quality! If vintage, contemporary, or modern design is what you are looking for you are in luck because they have several from all design styles.
3. According to a survey conducted by online interior design service Modsy, traditional and classic design styles rose in popularity by 11%. The Victorian-era, grandmillennial aesthetics, and antiques are making a huge comeback as people are turning to timeless, valuable pieces for comfort instead of filling their homes with cheap decor. You can find gorgeous pieces like the one's pictured below at The Estate Center and have a blast shopping in the 16,000 sq ft showroom!
4. Color! White washed, chalk paint, and white decor was everywhere in 2020. Surprisingly, people became bored with the lack of color in their homes and so color is back! People are combining vintage & antiques with contemporary & modern design. It creates nostalgia in their homes as they reminisce about visiting grandma and grandpa as a child.
You can accomplish this look by incorporating vintage lighting and furniture within your modern designed home. It's all about the details. If you don't want to purchase new furniture, choose a few antique and vintage decor pieces with bold color. The Estate Center has thousands of colorful pieces to bring joy back into your home! Out with the boring white and in with happy colors!
